Last night I was not on duty, but Jo and Veronica had promised to ring if anything started happening. At midnight I got a call from Veronica saying one lamb had just been born and although they were not sure if there would be another one or not I was welcome to go over, then she said “oh-oh I’ve got to go”. I quickly pulled on my clothes and a 10 minute drive later I was arriving at their place. The new lamb was already on its feet and mum was licking away at it – bonding, drying it off, getting it warm. Within a few minutes mum got up, turned around, lifted her head as if to give a large yawn, and another one just slid out! J&V rubbed it with straw and cleaned its mouth and nose and then pulled it round to mum’s head end so that they could bond.
What an amazing experience. I can’t find the words right now, so I’ll show you the pictures instead:
